Here's what will happen to this recording, now that it gererated some buzz in the media....


Graceland will dismiss it (if they hav'nt already) ,and the owner will publish a book and include a remastered CD of the song, with the lyrics, and a fold out poster, all for 100 Euros through your favorite Elvis dealer/club. I best hurry up and submit my pre-order. :smt003

You would think if EPE were going to dismiss it they would have already...

You should give it a spin. It's not only a hundred times better quality than this here fake demo, but it's also a different song by a different songwriter with a different beat, different lyrics and different melody. That to ME was an exciting moment, hearing that for the first time just when i thought we'd heard every master.

True - and it sure as heck doesn't sound anything like Elvis in 1976 either...it sounds more like the late 1973 sessions when Loving Arms was recorded...that is the only period that I can think of where Elvis sounded anything remotely like this.

Here's the real link to the story (rather than the one that was posted from a mobile device):

Violet Hinton herself is on Facebook talking about the song underneath the article if anyone wants to put her in touch with Ernst Jorgensen.

Mate, it DOESN'T.

It doesn't sound like Elvis at ANY period. I am flabberghasted that ANYONE, especially Elvis fans and collectors, can even liken this to the great man.

All I'm saying is that the poor-quality snippets we've heard aren't enough to make a sure judgement.

To be certain, we'd need to hear a full, proper version in good quality audio, that's all..................

All of you who somehow think this might be Elvis, how old are you and have you changed the battery in your hearing aid lately? :wink:

You must have splattered in your pants when "I'm A Roustabout" turned up!



Andy, would you by any chance be able to sing & record "Living To Love You" in its entirety (using only your acoustic guitar), provided that you're able to attain the lyrics (written by Jim Crane) of the song ?

I would love to hear the song in its entirety. Elvis or not.


BTW, I do not recall splattering anything when "I'm A Roustabout" turned up. I thought it was just a bad quality alternate take of "Roustabout".



It's a totally different song and FAR superior to the lightweight title song they actually used!!!

Guys, it took me 2 seconds to be sure this is NOT Elvis for God's sake.

I can't believe that any Elvis fan would really think think this is Elvis singing this song.

Absolutely agree. The first couple times I erroneously thought it was (wishful thinking more than anything else) but after more listens there is no doubt in my mind that that is absolutely not Elvis.

Ridiculous!!!

Can you do a better version Andy ?

Re: "Living To Love You" Mp3 (More Complete Audio)

I wanted to believe it was him, but sorry, it's not him. Even when he was singing with little interest from time to time in the 1970s, his voice never sounded as ordinary and imitator-like as this. There's no authenticity in this voice at all with Something essential is missing. It sounds too much like someone trying to sound like Elvis. Elvis sounded better than this.

I don't have any desire to. It sounds like a crap song.

What is this doing in off topic when there are several threads on this topic in the Elvis section? I think most of us agree that it's not Elvis singing, but it's still an Elvis story.
